Left behind – homeless dog watches adopted brother leave

A homeless dog in Long Island, New York, is mourning the loss of her brother, who recently found a forever home. Kloe, a two-year-old Labrador retriever mix, arrived to the Brookhaven Shelter with her brother – both came to the facility as strays.

Though the shelter staff tried to find a home where the bonded dogs could live together, nobody wanted them as a pair. Kloe’s sibling left for a new life…she has been left behind, waiting, and wondering what happened to her friend.

On July 31, the Desperate Dogs of Long Island Facebook page created a post for Kloe – the following information has been shared about the type of home situation this young dog should be well in:

Kloe would do well with another dog to help her transition into a new home without her brother, and as she has never lived with small children, a home with older children or adults would be best. Housebroken, spayed and up to date on vaccinations, she’s a great dog with a wonderful personality –  and all she needs is love.

Please help share Kloe’s adoption information – she deserves the same happily-ever-after that her brother has already been blessed with.

Phone: 631-451-6950 (when calling the shelter, please note the time of your call and the name of the person you spoke with) Kloe, CC#16-54-5239

    If I saw two bonded siblings like this, I honestly don’t think I could take just one of them. I’m so sorry Kloe, I hope you find your forever home soon with another brother to share your life with.

    I so want to adopt this angel! I have a 9 yr old lab, Miss LuLu, and I’m retired & have a hole in my heart from my 14 yr old lab, Gretals, who passed away last month.
